Number One With A Bullet | Bill Whittle

[The following is a speech by Bill Whittle on Gun Control in America and around the world. ]

Every time there is a shooting in America, our moral betters on the left immediately ammo up the assault rifle of their rhetorical arsenal: namely, our country’s sick, twisted obsession with personal firearms; our adolescent, psychosexual, dangerous and frankly embarrassing when facing our European film critic friends AMERICAN GUN CULTURE.

Hopping over to the ever-reliable Wikipedia, for example, we discover that when it comes to per capita gun ownership, the USA does in fact top the list: when measured as the number of guns per 100 residents, the US comes in first, at ninety! NINETY guns per one hundred residents: evidence for the Progressives on the left that they do in fact live in the murder capitol of the world; because when it comes to gun ownership, America IS number one with a bullet, with by far the highest per capita gun ownership in the world – 90 guns per 100 people being half again more than the number two spot held by Serbia, with 58.2.

Now all we have to do to prove the left-wing Progressive weenie case for banning guns is to do is a quick search for the per capita MURDER rate… and sure enough, leading the number two country by about half again more with 90 murders per 100,000 people is… Honduras.

Socialist, gun-controlled Honduras. Because even though America has by far the highest per capita gun ownership rate, we don’t have the highest per capita murder rate. And unfortunately for the Progressive leftist argument, we’re not second either. Or third.

When it comes to per capita murders, Team USA didn’t even make the top five.

As a matter of fact, we didn’t even make the top ten.

Or the top twenty. Or the top thirty. Or the top forty. We’re not in the top fifty per capita murders. Gun Culture America is not in the top sixty nations in terms of per capita murders. Or the top seventy. Or the top eighty. Or the top ninety.

Of the 218 nations and territories listed for per capita murders, the United States of America – murderville – did not break the top one hundred. We are, with 4.7 murders per 100,000 people in 2012, number 111.

111th place puts near top of the bottom half of all of the nations and territories in the world when it comes to total per capita murders… and virtually all – if not all — of those nations ranked higher than us are big-state socialist utopias with stringent gun control laws.

How tragically disappointing that must be for our moral superiors.

And unfortunately for the left, it gets worse. Because 111th place America’s murder rate of 4.7 per 100,000 citizens is artificially much higher than it should be, because it includes so many deadly, murderous, toxic places… like number one on the list of highly gun controlled, Democratically-governed-since-the-stone-age murder pits like Detroit Michigan.

Detroit, with strict gun control laws has a per capita murder rate of 54.6 murders per 100,000 citizens. If Detroit were its own country, it would just beat Venezuela for SECOND as the most murderous country in the world, behind Honduras.

America’s 111th place, 4.7 murder per 100,000 people also includes, in order, Democratically governed, heavily gun controlled New Orleans, with 53.2 murders per hundred thousand; St. Louis, with 35.5; Baltimore with 34.9; Newark, 34.4; Oakland, 31.8; followed by Stockton 23.7; Kansas City 22.6, Philadelphia 21.5, Cleveland 21.3, Memphis 20.2, Atlanta 19.0 and Chicago, with 18.5 murders per 100,000 per year.

America’s per capita average of 4.7 murders includes all of these high-crime areas. The first city to appear in Gun-Mad Texas is Dallas, which isn’t in the top twenty. America’s overall average of 4.7 is as low as it is because of places like Plano, Texas – the last city on the list – with a murder rate of 0.4. Having been to Plano Texas several times, I can tell you with confidence that virtually every home in Plano Texas has an entire arsenal of Ar-15 assault rifles, semi-automatic shotguns, 30.06 hunting rifles, .45’s, .357s, 38s, 9mms, an assortment .22s for the kids to practice with, not to mention every species of bowie knife, hunting knife, jack knife, bayonet, switchblade pointy rocks and sharp sticks.

The per capita murder rate in Gun Nut Central is 0.4 per 100,000: if the United States of America, as a nation, had the same murder rate as Plano Texas, we would not but 111 out of 218; we’d be 211 out of 218 – well below Switzerland at 0.6, HALF of Germany, Spain and Denmark at 0.8, and well, well below half of New Zealand, the Netherlands, Austria, Italy, France and Australia. If all of America had the murder rate of the gun-nut capital of Gun Culture USA – Plano, Texas – then America’s per capita murder rate would be ONE QUARTER of those murderous, violent, rampaging, death-worshipping Belgians with their horrific 1.6 murders per hundred thousand.

Maybe it’s not the guns. Maybe it’s the people holding the guns.

On The Magic Pill, Halle Berry & the Ketogenic Diet

As low-carbohydrate, high-fat diets grow in popularity, beef takes center stage once again on Americans’ dinner plates.

Amanda Radke | May 07, 2018

In 2017, a documentary titled, “The Magic Pill” was released on Netflix. The documentary explains how low-fat diets deprive the body of essential nutrients and the proper support to fuel brain function, and it highlights the ketogenic diet — one that focuses on animal proteins and healthy fats.

Although I haven’t watched it yet, there’s been plenty of chatter on social media about it. From what I’ve read, the documentary follows seven different people facing various health challenges, and it debunks the mainstream health advice that suggests people should avoid red meat to ward off diseases as they age.

READ: The Magic Pill: Fat as Fuel Diet

As the ketogenic diet continues to grow in popularity, many are calling it just another fad — one that will quickly go away to make room for the next get-thin-quick dietary regime. However, there is certainly some merit to this way of eating; after all, meat has been the basis of healthy diets since the beginning of time; it’s only been in the last 40-50 years that doctors and nutritionists have changed their tunes and started recommending more carbohydrates in the diet.

If the rates of obesity, cancer, diabetes and heart disease are any indication, the results of following this dietary advice are quite obvious — it’s been a disaster of epic proportions and a failed experiment on human health.

So perhaps society is waking up to this cold truth, and consumers may be turning their attentions to animal fats and proteins once again. Considering Americans will consume a record-breaking amount of meat this year, this could be an indication that a shift in thinking has already taken place.

Celebrity endorsements of these types of healthy diets don’t hurt either. We already know that Angelina Jolie, one of the most widely celebrated and successful Hollywood actresses of our time, considers steak to be her beauty secret.

READ: Angelina Jolie says red meat is her beauty secret

Most recently, the beautiful and talented A-list actress Halle Berry discussed her dietary habits with PEOPLE magazine.

According to Abby Stern for PEOPLE | Food, Berry says she follows the “trendy, low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat eating plan.”

Berry (age 51) told PEOPLE, “I don’t really eat pasta, anything with sugar, it’s very much meat-based. I eat meat. I enjoy chicken and beef and a lot of vegetables.”

Stern writes, “Berry has been very public about her love for the ketogenic diet. On a recent appearance on Live! With Kelly and Ryan, she shared that the plan works for her as a diabetic.”

Berry said, “I eat healthy fats all day long, avocado, oil, coconut oil and I use butter, but don’t have any sugar. So when your body gets trained to burn fats, it’s constantly on fat-burning mode—that’s the secret.”

Hey, if it works for these ageless Hollywood women, it works for me! I’ll gladly take a page from these gorgeous women and eat more meat to help me stay youthful, healthy and energized. Plus, with the added bonuses of promoting lean muscle mass and optimal brain function, a meat-based diet can help us stay sharp, focused and strong as we age. What’s not to love?

The Media Who Cried Wolf: Anit-Trump Bias Hurts Media Most

Instead of killing President Trump, the establishment media are killing themselves.

This appears to be the solution to the current conundrum of American politics: How is President Trump surviving the relentless onslaught of negative media?   The counterintuitive conclusion is that this unparalleled negative coverage is more damaging to the source than the target.

According to Rasmussen polling results released on in late April, 54% of likely voters “say they do not trust the political news they are getting.”  That is an eight-point increase from last June’s 46%, the poll’s previous high, and 18 points higher than last January’s result.

With just 32% saying “they do trust the political news they are getting,” the establishment media polls well below the President.  If trustworthiness is the media’s basic job description, they have an effective job approval rating of 32% favorable, 54% unfavorable. In contrast, President Trump’s job approval rating on the day this poll was released was 48% favorable, 50% unfavorable.

The media’s current approval results are actually below the lowest reading Rasmussen has recorded for Trump’s presidency — 38% last August.

This inversion of expected results differs greatly from past presidential experiences.  Although the establishment media have long been perceived as biased by conservatives, hence the decades-long existence of conservative media, the feeling now extends well past the 35% of 2016 voters who identified themselves as conservatives in exit polling.

That a president could actually rebound under this withering coverage only heightens the mystery.

Comparison to a similar phenomenon in economics helps explain this counterintuitive occurrence. Constructed by Arthur Laffer in the 1970s, his Laffer Curve argument gained prominence with “supply siders,” who understood its power for explaining tax cuts’ positive economic impact.

The curve’s premise is that a tipping point exists between tax rates and tax revenue.  Beyond the tipping point, a tax increase produces a revenue drop, and vice versa.

Prior to the tipping point, higher tax rates increase revenues — even though higher rates stop some economic activity, it is more than offset by the higher rates’ impact on the remainder.  However, post-tipping point, the reverse occurs: The rate increase diminishes activity beyond what the higher rate can offset and overall revenues decline.

How this could occur is mostly easily seen at the extreme.  A tax rate of 100 percent does not get a 100% of the former production rate; it gets 100% of the new production rate: 0.  Therefore when rates above the tipping point are rolled back, revenues actually rise as production increases.

The same phenomenon is apparently happening with the establishment media’s relentlessly negative coverage of President Trump.

Increasingly people are seeing the obvious: Establishment media’s claim of unbiased coverage has become a transparent joke.  We can dub the effect here the Laugher Curve.

A rapidly growing portion of America’s population is not simply tuning out the establishment media; they are turning against it.

Apparently their tipping point has been crossed.  Negative coverage, like excessive taxation, has produced the opposite effect from that intended.

Economics does not simply supply an analogy to the current political situation; it drives it.  The establishment media’s economic decline has sped their political one.  Long gone is their monopoly of decades ago when three television networks determined the news.

As the audience fragments more, the establishment media attract a shrinking segment and grow ever more dependent on it.  Increasingly needing to retain it, the establishment media must increasingly cater to it.  And in the end: Entertain it.

This only further shrinks their audience and their own credibility — the thing on which their earlier reputation and audience rested.

Clearly what is occurring in the triangle of President Trump, the establishment media, and the American public is not what has happened in the past.

Few past politicians could have survived, let alone be thriving — in the sense that he won election and has rebounded significantly from polling lows in office — under such an establishment media onslaught.  Instead, it is the establishment media that appear to be in greater trouble with the public.

Unquestionably, Trump has been the beneficiary of this unintended consequence.  Well beyond just his recent rebound in public opinion, the establishment media helped create him in the first place.

Now its self-immolation serves to inoculate him.  Like the boy who cried wolf too often, fewer and fewer are likely to believe the establishment media, even should they have a real wolf to report.

  • Young served under President George W. Bush as the director of communications in the Office of Management and Budget and as deputy assistant secretary in legislative affairs for tax and budget at the Treasury Department. He was a congressional staffer from 1987-2000.

EXCLUSIVE: Cheesecake Factory Employees Attack Black Man For Wearing MAGA Hat, Witnesses Say | Daily Wire

On Mother’s Day, employees at a Cheesecake Factory in Miami, Florida, verbally attacked and made threatening gestures toward a black man who dined with his girlfriend’s family simply because he was wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat, according to multiple witnesses interviewed by The Daily Wire.

The Sunday incident allegedly began at the Cheesecake Factory located inside Dadeland Mall when 22-year-old Eugenior Joseph was seated while wearing his MAGA hat.

According to multiple witnesses and Joseph’s own account, a woman who worked at the restaurant walked up to him and started pointing at his hat, signaling for the other employees to come over.

“Her finger was literally on top of his head, we were all looking at her like ‘what is happening?'” one witness told The Daily Wire. “She was pointing at him, calling her other coworkers, telling them to look at this guy wearing a Make America Great Again hat.”

At that point, approximately a dozen or so employees approached the table and began making comments about the hat, with some saying they wanted to punch Joseph in the face. Witnesses also allege that some of the employees also referred to him as a “n**ger” in their conversations among each other.

“So then all the employees started standing there, saying things out loud, like, ‘I’m going to knock his head in so hard his hat’s going to come off,” the witness continued.

One of the employees gave Joseph intimidating looks, clenching his fists and making hand gestures that appeared to indicate that he was ready to engage in a fistfight.

“He got behind me and another coworker came by and they were staring at each other and he fist bumped him and then he started looking at me, balling his fists, smacking his fists, trying to scare me,” Joseph told The Daily Wire.

Another witness told The Daily Wire that the group of employees looked like a lynch mob and they couldn’t stand to see a black man wearing a hat that showed support for the president.

Employees at the restaurant continued to mock and intimidate Joseph after he got up to use the restroom.

“I got up and went to the restroom, my girlfriend followed me, and as we were walking back, a group of [the employees] came out from the back and they just started clapping and yelling, and just screaming things at me,” Joseph says.

Another witness verified the claims, saying that the employees in the kitchen were booing Joseph loudly as he walked by.

One of the witnesses said that the event was so traumatic and threatening that an elderly woman who was present had to take medication to calm herself down.

Multiple witnesses said that as the family exited the restaurant the manager followed them out and told them that some of the employees admitted to their actions and that one of the employees had been sent home.

As the family left the restaurant they ran into police that had been called to the scene who documented the incident in the police report but supposedly did not file any charges, according to multiple witnesses.

The Daily Wire contacted the Cheesecake Factory where the alleged incident took place and spoke to a manager who refused to answer any questions and instead recorded this reporter’s contact information and had a public relations firm representing the Cheesecake Factory reach out to this reporter. When this reporter brought up the incident and asked whether or not he could confirm that it took place in the restaurant, the manager’s tone became slightly hostile as he reiterated: “I’m going to have someone get in touch with you.”

The Daily Wire viewed multiple video clips and photos that validate the claims made by the witnesses about the number of employees appearing to stand around the table. One of the photos showed one of the men described by the witnesses as being the one who made the threatening hand gestures, making the fist bump with another employee, which was described by at least three witnesses.

Another video reviewed by The Daily Wire showed a young girl crying at the table, afraid of the hostile environment created by The Cheesecake Factory employees.

Another video showed the family leaving the restaurant and speaking to multiple law enforcement officials who arrived on scene. The video shows Joseph in a state of disbelief over what had just unfolded as other witnesses were visibly angry over the way he had been treated.

Joseph says that he has not heard from anyone at The Cheesecake Factory about what he experienced inside their restaurant.

Despite being new to politics, Joseph says that he wears the hat because he thinks Trump “is a really good president,” adding that he is disappointed that a black man can’t wear a hat to support the president without being attacked.

Freedom’s Slow Decline

The State’s erosion of our rights is slow. steady, and incremental. Remember the story of the frog in a pot of water? Drop a frog in hot water and he will jump out, but put him in cool water and slowly heat it up and he will die as he overheats.
If the State demanded an outright ban on free speech, or gun ownership, or privacy, the public would revolt and vote the culprits out of office. So instead the State enacts very small, seemingly benign, “reasonable” infringements of our rights. “Hate Speech” is mean, says the State, and therefore it must be criminalized in order “to protect the public” from hurt feelings. “We don’t want to ban private ownership of firearms, we just need to regulate the industry; so we will grant ‘permits’ to individuals allowing them to purchase handguns”. (And thus a right which the State is prohibited from infringing upon is changed into a privilege given at the discretion of the State.) And privacy?

 
The State assures the people that their rights are sacrosanct and protected by law, and at the same time it infringes upon those rights “for their protection”. The Patriot Act and other legislation allows the State to gather every bit of digital data created in America. The State can and does use technology most people are not even aware of to enable audio and video surveillance of them in their own homes.
Should our intelligence agencies be able to monitor potential terrorists on American soil? There are arguments to be made for granting them this capability. However, history shows us that when granted great powers, the State ignores legal limitations restricting its authority and abuses those powers. Given the ability to surveil terrorist cells through all digital data, the State now uses that power to surveil everyone.

 
Those on the Left are particularly prone to abusing the power of the State, as clearly demonstrated by the actions of the Obama administration and the Clinton cartel. Various political opposition groups were falsely labeled “potential terrorist threats” and the power of the State was turned upon them. It is alarming to think how close Hillary Clinton came to the Presidency. Had she won we would never have known that the Democrats fed false reports to the FISA court in order to turn the power of the American government against a political candidate.
George Soros and other extremely wealthy backers of Obama and the Clintons belong to the Club of Rome, a group on record as wanting to form a non-democratic, world government. This would necessitate the eradication of sovereign nations, including the United States, and the creation of subservient regional governments. The Clintons and other politicians supported by Soros are aligned with the Club of Rome and its goals.

 
Today most leftists have adopted the label “progressive”. The word has a double meaning. It can mean a person or group favoring political reforms and liberal ideas. But it also means “happening or developing gradually or in stages; proceeding step by step”. Liberals love the term “progressive” because it describes their goals as well as their strategy.

 
This is why it is so important to stand up against every “reasonable” measure which infringes upon our constitutionally protected rights, or which grants the federal government any more power or authority than the Constitution grants it.

What not to do on a first date: 10 things to avoid – eharmony Dating Advice

First dates can be nerve-wracking. It’s natural to feel nervous about meeting a stranger, especially if we think that stranger could end up becoming a significant part of our lives. But unfortunately, nerves can make us say or do things we wouldn’t normally. Happily, we’re here to help. If you’re wondering what not to do on a first date, here are the top 10 things to avoid.

1. Forget your manners

Hold doors open, say please and thank you, and eat with your mouth closed. Be friendly and polite. Your date will often judge you more on your treatment of others than your treatment of him or her.

2. Skimp on personal hygiene

First impressions are important. You rarely get second chances, so make sure you feel at your best. Shower, shave, brush your teeth, and change into clean clothes. Remember to wear deodorant and try a perfume or aftershave. Treat each first date like a special occasion; you could be meeting your future life partner, after all.

Meet someone special

3. Forget to ask questions

When it comes to what not to do on a first date, talking about yourself constantly is a big no-no. When you’re nervous it can be easy to fall into that trap and forget to ask your date anything. Remember that they want to tell you about themselves too. Aim for equal airtime during the date, and when you do ask a question, remember to pay attention to the answer.

4. Talk over or for your date

Most people find it extremely rude if they’re asked a question and someone answers on their behalf. Never order food for your date, unless he or she has expressly asked you to. And never speak over them. It makes you look like you don’t care about their opinion.

5. Comment on what the other person is or isn’t eating

What not to do on a first date? Comment on their appetite! Whether your date isn’t eating much – or they’re eating a lot – I can guarantee that they don’t want you to make conversation about it. By all means check that they like the food, but don’t go beyond that.

6. Get too drunk

Most people indulge in a little Dutch courage on a first date, but try not to let yourself get too drunk. Alcohol can loosen your tongue and make you say things you didn’t plan to share. It can also lower your inhibitions, which might lead you to take things further than you’d planned on the first date. There’s plenty of time to get to know the other person better. And remember, never leave your drink unattended on a date with a stranger.

7. Use the words ‘my ex’

This may seem like an obvious rule but you’d be surprised how easy it is to start thinking about your ex when you’re in a romantic setting. No matter how your last relationship ended, avoid talking about it on a first date. Dwelling on the past will make it seem like you’re not ready to date yet, and mentioning an ex will make your date feel like you’re making comparisons.

Meet someone special

8. Get too awkward or confrontational

There are certain topics of conversation that just don’t work well on first dates. Avoid discussing anything too serious or confrontational. While it’s good to find out whether you have shared values, certain topics can be uncomfortably inflammatory. It can also be difficult for people to accurately represent their feelings with a total stranger.

9. Mention marriage and children

If the person is right for you, there will be plenty of opportunities to discuss marriage and children in the future. Don’t bring them up on a first date. It makes the date seem like an awkward interview. Even if the other person has the same aims as you, bringing them up within minutes of meeting is only likely to scare him or her away. Be patient and enjoy the date for what it is – a chance to get to know someone new.

10. Be cheap when it comes to paying the bill

Research shows that most men and women still expect a man to pick up the bill on a first date. If you’re choosing the date venue, suggest a location where you’re happy to pay for both people. If you’re lucky enough to have someone pay for dinner or drinks, always offer to pay your share. Even if someone intends to pay the full bill, it comes across badly if you don’t at least offer to chip in.

The look of love? How a woman’s glance can tell a man if she’s interested (or whether to walk away now) | Daily Mail Online

The female mind has always been a complete mystery to most men and their enigmatic thoughts and actions almost impossible to decode – until now.

Finally the closely-held secret of whether a woman fancies someone has been exposed and experts have found it is all in the eyes.

A new study looked at how and where women glance after a man makes initial eye contact and found this shows him all he needs to know about his chances of romance.

good news!
good news!

Great news! Life coach Ali Campbell says that if a woman looks down and sweeps the floor with her eyes, left, or looks to the side and then back it is a sure sign she fancies a man

What happens in the 45 seconds after meeting makes it crystal clear if love is in the air or whether the hapless male suitor will get the cold shoulder, experts have said.

About turn: A woman looking sideways was often thought to be a rejection but research has found that it is in fact a good sign she fancies you

About turn: A woman looking sideways was often thought to be a rejection but research has found that in fact she is attracted to you

Life coach Ali Campbell says in his book ‘More than Just Sex’ that the look men want to see is her looking down and then moving her eyes in a sweeping motion across the floor because it almost certainly means that she is attracted to you.

This glance means that she is checking her internal emotions, in short, she likes you but is working out how much.

‘It’s the holy grail of looks,’ he said.

‘If a guy can pick up on that he has a sure-fire way to work out if she is interested.’

And in a complete reversal the disinterested, shy or bashful look sideways a woman often gives is not the brush-off most men thought it was.

It is in fact the opposite.

If a woman looks away for up to 45 seconds and then stares you straight in the eye it is another sure sign that she is interested because she is thinking hard about whether you are a suitable partner.

‘Most guys have the idea that if they make eye contact and she looks away she is not interested. But she will look away, that’s inevitable. That’s what happens when we think to ourselves and also consider our feelings,’ Mr Campbell told MailOnline.

‘I have interviewed literally hundreds of women and too many men concentrate on having the right car, the right watch, the right whatever. But it is rubbish, all the women I spoke to told me they are just interested in what men are like inside.

‘What I am doing for guys is to make sure they know there is someone out there who is interested in you. The important thing is to show who you really are.’

But of course with good news there is bad and this book has also given men the clearest indications yet about whether they have no chance of love with someone they like.

If after the man makes eye contact she instantly looks over his head or stares straight back at him it is almost certainly curtains.

Bad news
Bad news

Forget it: An aggressive stare, left, or looking up or over a man’s head is not good news and experts say a man is best to turn his attention elsewhere

These two ‘aggressive’ reactions mean the man should back off quickly and turn his attentions elsewhere to avoid further embarrassment.

‘You do not want her to stare you out or look over your head. That’s a bad sign,’ he said.

Mr Campbell’s study has also found women give off other signals that men should look out for on a date or when they meet someone for the first time.

Secret: The book has revealed a whole new world to men which they can use to know if a date is going well or not

Secret: The book has revealed a whole new world to men which they can use to know if a date is going well or not

Whether she is right or left handed she will use her dominant wrist to point at you if she likes you.

Also if she touches her hair she is attracted to you and if she twirls the ends then she really likes you.
